Remembering the 55,000,000 children who have been legally killed in the 41 years abortion has been legal in this country. Pray for the mothers who thought this was their only option, the mothers who chose this freely, the mothers who were coerced. The fathers who pressed for this with words or by absence, the fathers who didn’t want the abortion but had no say, the fathers who don’t even know they ever had a child. The parents who thought they were sparing their child, the children and now-grown adults who are missing siblings, the world who is missing friends. The grandparents who pressed for the abortion to be spared embarrassment, the grandparents who are mourning their grandchildren, the beautiful faces the world will never see. We entrust these children to God. For these and all cases, we beg for forgiveness; His mercy overflows.
For those who do not yet recognize the gravity of what they’ve done, for those who have hardened their hearts to the truth of the life they carried, for those who think they must support abortion because they had one, for those who support abortion because they know someone who did, for those who think this is what progress means, may the truth pierce the lies built around their heart. God’s mercy is never ending.
We as a people have borne this burden of legal atrocity far too long. Far, far too long. May we as a nation not be judged by what we deserve.
Interested to see how this plays out.
Instead of calling people with Down Syndrome “baboons,” I suggest doctors give the news of a Down Syndrome diagnosis with a smile saying, “There will be challenges but your child is nearly guaranteed to be a happy adult!”
And really that is the price of embracing the culture of death, of using death as a “medical treatment” – it is quite literally the elimination of happiness.

To wretch and look away is to silently condone.
A man who severs the spines of babies born alive during botched abortions also collected their hands and feet in his home.
And this is not making national news.
It is not hard to figure out why. Read on. One of the most harrowing things you’ll read is not even in this article. Read its first comment:
“I read the article and failed to see what would be national news. Abortions involve violence against the fetus. Those of us of us support the wide availability of abortions are not denying the fact. “
May God have mercy on us all.
Reflecting on the fragility of life today, on Easter Sunday. This story is an amazing testament to the power of each to minister to one another, sometimes without knowing.
Take courage this holy day, courage in the truth of your existence. Courage that you exist for a purpose… courage that your quest is always yet to be determined.
Trust in God.
“The woman recounted that a few months previous she was dismayed to find herself unexpectedly pregnant. She had gone out shopping to distract herself because she had just scheduled an appointment to get an abortion and was terrified about it. The appointment was two days away.
As the woman walked from her car into Walmart, a red bracelet lying on the ground caught her eye. She picked it up and saw that it had the word LIFE on it. She quickly stowed the bracelet in her purse and continued with her shopping.
That night the woman sat in her room crying, filled with an awful dread about what she was about to do. She was worried about what her parents would think and felt the need to “get rid of the problem.” As well, her boyfriend had abandoned her, making abortion seem like the only choice that was left.
At this point in the woman’s story, Rachel could not hold back her tears any longer. She completely forgot that she was supposed to be working and that she had other tables to serve.”
